No one in my office is happy with the higher density on the 772s to/from the mainland. First is 2-4-2 which is not much different width-wise - 19 vs 17.1 according to SeatGuru - and there are no complimentary upgrades any longer except for LAX and SFO. Coach at 3-4-3 when you're trying to do work - ...Jump to post
I suspect with the Mayor of HNL standing shoulder to shoulder on the beach during the announcement, they have an agreement already in place. That was the Governor of Hawaii - not the Mayor of Honolulu. :-) With ETOPS being new to them - I'm guessing their schedule is going to be more limited that w...Jump to post

Why would NAV Canada get involved at all? From their own website - they are a private company and receive no subsidy from the Canadian government. Is there a relationship between the two? Of course. If the Canadian Government uses them in retaliation they are essentially using a private company for ...Jump to post
Would love to see HA pick up the 787 and have a fleet of 787s in Hawaiian colors based here in Honolulu!Jump to post
United has blocked 47 seats for at least 1 contest they're running for travel agents - they're probably doing special invites with the rest.. Yo, United, how about running something for corporate travel managers who sell a lot of United and live in Hawaii?Jump to post
Island Air needs to figure out what they are and start making some money. For Hawaiian it isn't just an issue of engines - they also need a plane that can carry all the passenger's bags and cargo. We had SuperFerry .. huge fiasco .. the state is still paying off on it even though the ships are long ...Jump to post
I don't understand the question either - airlines waive fees and let people rebook their flights over a span of dates .. they have to reroute flights, they have to cancel flights, they have to reposition staff, they rebook people .. they're not going to drop empty planes in and sell the seats for th...Jump to post

There were 2 flights - one westbound (PA1) and one eastbound (PA2).
This really disproves the notion that Hawaii is only a low yield destination. Not necessarily. It could also be seen as a preemptive move. AS/VX will likely add a few flights. HA getting their 321's will likely mean added service, especially from KOA, OGG, and LIH. What I think it does do is put to...Jump to post

I would venture to say that while they purchased the tickets from Virgin Australia - with the places they went to - there were multiple airlines involved in the ticket. I've had the same thing happen with other airlines. If it's all one airline it's easier to correct a name. As soon as the ticket be...Jump to post
The only way overbooking will disappear is if your ticket is treated like a movie ticket or a theatre ticket. You buy it - no changes - no cancellations. It's good for the date and time printed on the ticket and that's it. You don't go - you lose all your money and it becomes scrap paper. Can you im...Jump to post
Let's not forget big part of the impetus to leave JFK was driven by fact that UA's T-7 sublease was about to expire and BA did not plan on renewing. UA was to be left homeless at JFK and atleast would face higher cost. As rumors at the time stated only option was T4 but with high likelihood of port...Jump to post
On another note, Hawaian Airlines L1011s, DC8s and DC10s were regulars at LGW and several other European airports including Frankfurt during the summers of the late 1980s to mid 90s, does anyone know their routings. Hawaiian was doing regular charters for SunTrips and I think other companies, but f...Jump to post

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqWksuyry5w&t=0s This video gave me an excellent insight into the practice of overbooking. Recommended :) Explained very well.

The colours of Hawaii ..... am I missing something or is this after a huge rainfall and a mudslide ? Agreed .. Hawaiian generally isn't shy about color .. for those of us who live in Hawaii - this isn't representational of Hawaii at all.

Do you remember Mukulele and Aloha? They are no longer in business. I don't think that HA makes much of a profit on it's inter island flights. They are more to feed their mainland flights. Hawaiian flies interisland to provide transportation for the residents of Hawaii. They've been flying interisl...Jump to post

Air Micronesia was started years ago between the island government, Aloha Airlines and Continental. I believe Continental supplied all the aircraft. It was an island-hopper .. 727-100s hopping from Honolulu to Guam and the islands around Guam. It was also branded as Continental Micronesia and then j...Jump to post

Does JHM still have any airline service? Hawaiian will be resuming service to JHM in 2017, through the Ohana by Hawaiian brand, flying ATR42-500's.
